Actress Jessica Alba is tackling another new role: author.
The “Fantastic Four” star told People magazine that she’ll soon release her first book, “The Honest Life.”
She's referring to it as a how-to guide to creating a non-toxic home life for your family.
The married mother of two says her own brood served as a template for the tome, which is set to hit bookshelves early next year.
The actress says it will offer tips on how to create a safe environment for the ones you love, tackling everything from design tips to recipes - including some from her own kitchen. It will also chronicle her life as a mother and entrepreneur.
"It's totally crazy but amazing," Alba told the magazine about the impending project, adding that she's "not extreme." “This book is for people who are in the middle but want to create a healthier life, like me.”
The book is actually an extension of Alba’s new health-based business, The Honest Company, which she launched with business partner Christopher Gavigan, who also helped scribe the book.
Alba is the mother to two tykes, 3-year-old Honor and 7-month-old Haven.
